I lived near Berea many years ago and bought a norwood cherry 4 harness loom. Took a class. Great place and wondering if they still do individual classes. It has been a long time and I need another class. I packed it up and we were shipped oversees for 7 years) I live near Tulsa now so wondering if anyone knows of classes. I warped the loom and it sits. off topic sorry.

We have three Newcomb flying shuttle looms and love weaving on them. Did you get the help you need to get started?
